On other side Indian officials were shocked with her unauthorized presence alongside the flag bearer Sushil Kumar and left many questions in their mind regarding security at the venue. But now she has been identified as Madhura Honey, a postgraduate student, hailing from Bangalore.
According to the latest reports, her father in Bangalore confirmed that his daughter is a good dancer and went to Olympics as a dancer for the opening ceremony. "My daughter was selected for a performance at the inaugural by Danny Boyle," said Madhura's father, K L Nagendra, a leather export entrepreneur based in Bangalore.
Wearing totally contrast dress, red sweat shirt and blue trouser, brought herself into the eyes of everyone present at the ceremony. Acting chef de mission of the Indian contingent, Brig P K Muralidharan Raja was understandably agitated that a person who was not part of the delegation was allowed to accompany the team and hog the limelight in the process. "She had no business to walk in with the Indian contingent and we are taking up the issue with the organisers. We don`t know who she is and why she was allowed to walk in. It is a shame that she was with the athletes in the march past", Raja told zeenews.com.
But on the other side, her father disagrees that his daughter did anything wrong. "Being an Indian, the organizing committee might have selected Madhura to take the team inside the stadium," said Nagendra.
Madhura is the second of three daughters of Nagendra and Janhavi, residents of Banashankari area in Bangalore. Madhura completed her masters in communication in 2009 from Christ University.
